It took almost two months, since first reaching out to her, before I finally had a sit-down with Yvonne Okwara. And it wasn’t for the lack of trying.
We tried to get together so much so, that it got to a point I began to worry about my text messages coming across as spam. This was a sentiment Yvonne instantly dismissed; because in person, she’s graceful, and warm.
Yvonne and I finally meet at Eka Hotel’s Spur Restaurant, along Mombasa Road. When Yvonne arrives for our lunch, two things about her strike me the most: her frame, and her perfume.
